The Saint Michael Trio (Robin Sharp, violin; Russell Hancock, piano; Michel Flexer, cello) is highly recognized in Silicon Valley and known for keeping the classical music scene current. Established in 2007, they are considered California’s premiere piano trio, and their recordings inspire ongoing accolades in the national press. They receive special praise for making their concerts interesting, accessible, and often funny.
We were very excited to be a part of this wonderful performance. Russell experimented something new premiering it for this show. Adding another creative aspect by showing images of the composers on a projector screen center stage. These images were shown during pivotal moments during the pieces, creating an atmosphere and another level of enjoyment for each piece. We were able to work together with Russell on making sure the images were to fade in at the right time throughout the entire concert. Attendees of the concert were drawn in even more with a visual connection with the piece they were already enjoying.
